Follow-up Comment #1, bug #49998 (project wget):

The favicon will be loaded when you mirror a site and this site advertises it,
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/images/favicon.ico" />

As you can see, the site may have the favicon in some different place then in
the server's root directory.

So, basically I am against automatic loading of the favicon (guessing the
right URL).

If you want guessing, you could take a tool like 'nikto' and parse it's hits
to wget. I mean instead of adding a 'guess' mode for wget.
